Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 1

    orange

  • Zest of 1 orange

  • 2

    sticks butter

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • Pinch of salt

  • 2

    egg yolks

  • 1

    large egg

  • 4

    cups flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 1/2

    cups orange marmalade

  • 3

    tablespoons orange extract

  • Powdered sugar for topping

  • Flour for work surface

  • Butter or cooking spray

  • Star shaped cookie cutter

Directions

1. Juice the orange, and strain to remove seeds. Set aside. 2. Mix softened butter with sugar. Add orange zest, 3 tablespoons of juice from orange, salt, large egg and egg yolks, stirring until frothy. 3. Mix flour with baking powder and sift into mixture. Knead with your hands into a smooth dough, and roll in plastic wrap. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 3 hours. 4. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease two baking sheets. Spread out flour and flatten the dough on top with a rolling pin - about 1/10 of an inch thick. 5. Cut out stars, rolling scraps of dough back out to cut as many stars as possible. Pinch a circle into the center of cookies, being sure to not make holes. Place cookies on the baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cookies will be firm to the touch when fully baked, and should not brown. 6. Mix orange marmalade with the extract in a saucepan on low heat until smooth. Place a spoonful of the mixture into the dipped center of each cookie. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
